The FAMILIA text messaging program focuses on family planning, active living, maintaining a healthy weight, improving nutrition, reducing stress, and addressing abuse. Each message links here to the FAMILIA website, which has more information, apps, blogs, and videos related to that topic. You’ll receive three healthy living texts each week for three months. You can choose to receive messages in English or Spanish.

 By taking charge of your health, you are taking charge of your future.
